The 24th Annual Hockey for Hospice tournament has raised more than $372,322 by nearly 2,000 young hockey players from across our region.

Originally conceived as a skate-a-thon by tournament founder, Tim Beaulieu, Hockey For Hospice has grown each year from its humble beginnings. This year’s edition included 265 games being played at five different arenas over the three days. Divisions included Tyke Jamboree, Novice Minor Jamboree, Novice Major Jamboree, Atom, PeeWee, and Bantam boys divisions, and Novice, Atom, and Bantam girls divisions.

“Hockey For Hospice is an example of the very best of Windsor and Essex County,” said Colleen Reaume, Executive Director of The Hospice. “It’s so gratifying to see how engaged these kids are in the tournament. Not only do they have fun, raise pledges and learn about The Hospice, they have each become wonderful ambassadors for us, and we are so grateful for the support.”

Over the past 24 years, Hockey For Hospice teams have raised $3,695,752.
